Creative Edge presents 2019 musical-theatre production

Abbotsford school of fine arts’ show on Friday, May 17 in Mission

Creative Edge School of Arts, Abbotsford’s largest fine arts school, hosts its fifth annual all-ages musical-theatre event on Friday, May 17.

The two-hour showcase includes Fiddler on the Roof Jr. and The Jungle Book Kids.

It features 50 Creative Edge theatre and dance students (ages five to 16), who have been working on the plays since September as part of the school’s musical theatre training program.

Fiddler on the Roof Jr. follows Tevye the milkman as he tries to protect his daughters and his way of life from a changing world.

Set on the eve of the Russian Revolution, the play tackles the universal themes of family and tradition in ways that reach across barriers of race, class, nationality and religion.

The Jungle Book Kids is adapted from Disney’s beloved animated film and the works of Rudyard Kipling. Watch the “man cub” Mowgli as he bounds through the jungle and learns what it means to be human.

The show starts at 6 p.m. at the Clarke Foundation Theatre, 33700 Prentis Ave. in Mission.

A portion of the proceeds from the performance will benefit the Abbotsford Hospice Society.

Tickets are $18 for adults and $13 for children and can be purchased from Creative Edge School of Arts (#300 – 3033 Immel St.) or at the door.

Group tickets of 10 or more receive half-price admission. Call 604-855-3343 for tickets or more information.
